So last night was my fourth magic the gathering event I have attended since starting the game back up again. I only had to play two players , since the turnout was so dismal. I played my gruul midrange .
First game went like this I went 2-0
I played a deck similar to mine. The guy ran xenagos , as did I . I happen to just outpace him in the first game, in the second he got me to ten life before I finally drew an answer to his polis cruiser with protection from enchantments. I had two courser of kruphix out so I was screwed. I played arbor colossus and flesh/blood to kill his crusher and it was over.
Game two was against my friend mike. He was running rakdos with a splash of white. His deck was fast . I had lost the first game in a throw down fight which I left him with little life and he burned me into submission.
Second game went differently I played a smash mouth combo with garruk caller of beast and kept pumping my hand with creatures. I used his minus two to play the party god himself, xenagos and it was game over.
Game three went fairly fast I just outpaced the burn deck and got a great board presence.
All in all it was pretty fun I am 3-1 in tourneys right now at my small local gaming shop, and 2-0 in standard 1-0 in modern.
If Anyone plays, what decks do you like to use ?
